Pakistan reacts angrily to Indian army chief's statement

By The Assam Tribune

Islamabad, Oct 16 (IANS) - Pakistan has reacted strongly to the statement of Indian army chief, General V.K. Singh that "Pakistan and China are major security threats for India".

In a statement issued Saturday, Pakistan's foreign office spokesman said the "allegations made by Indian army chief are baseless and distortion of facts".

"We outright reject these accusations," the spokesman added.

"The statements by Indian army's high command regarding possible atomic war in the region are highly irresponsible and detrimental to the peace and security in this part of the world," he said, while calling for "more maturity and restraint before making such statements".

General Singh had made these observations at a seminar Friday organised by the Army's think-tank Centre for Land Warfare Studies (CLAWS) on emerging roles and tasks of the Indian Army.
